Q: When did you start wrestling?

A: I started wrestling back when I was six years old, since then I have been All-American five times and won State champion numerous times. This will be my seventh year wrestling and I hope to wrestle for Robinson in high school.

Q: Who has helped you along the way to becoming so good at wrestling?

A: My dad wrestled for the Naval Academy so he helped me a lot. When I was ten I started wrestling for the Bandits Wrestling Club and my coach, David Manville, shaped me into a very well-off wrestler. I also got exposed to very tough competition and learned to compete against it. I started winning most of my matches and even placed at nationals.

Q: Do you have any advice for people wanting to be as talented as you?

A: I’m not super talented, I’ve just improved a lot over the years and anybody can get talented with practice and hard work. Most of all, you have to love what you do and be wiling to take risks and make the most of your potential.

A: I feel like I have many great moments, but it really comes down to when I won All-American and when I won my first few matches back when I was little.

Q: Where do you see your future with wrestling?
